The "cookbook team" included a clinical dietitian who drove the process, considering healthy alternatives and cooking techniques that presented an improvement to less healthy approaches. Patients involved in Children's Hospital's Healthy Changes Program, and members of the Youth Advisory Council, taste-tested many of the recipes presented on this web site.

"Nutrition related content is included within the cookbook.. This way, families can learn about nutrition, apply the concepts while cooking and savor the results at the dining table," explained Rebecca Thomas RD, LDN, clinical dietitian, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. "A nutrition facts label is also included with each recipe, which helps families understand the nutritional content of what they are eating."
